Eleven-year-old Kiisa had no idea why her parents would send her away to boarding school. But no matter what she said they were firm: she must go, and she must go to this school. Unknown to her, she would be going on the adventure of a lifetime - a dangerous rescue mission that includes rebels, stolen girls, illegal logging, a hungry cobra, and more messengers who help in unexpected ways.
Kiisa sets out to rescue others, but finds herself rescued from fear and bitterness as she learns that bravery is nothing more (or less) than being in the right place at the right time and taking action despite her fears.
"Dr. Jennifer Myhre's stories are birthed from the African outpost where her husband and family have shared their lives, skills, and hearts for the cause of the Christ. Each account, written so that her own family would embrace and rejoice in the power of the gospel, is told in engaging narrative fiction but also rings true with deep knowledge of the African experience and biblical hope for all nations."?
